Dean Westmoreland has three NHRA championships and 27 national event wins as a crew member with John Force Racing, plus an IHRA championship with Don Lampus, and he’s now pulling crew-chief duties on Rob Moore’s 1960 Chevy AA/Gas nostalgia racer. With all that quarter-mile experience, you’d expect his personal ride to be a Pro Street car built to the hilt. Nope.
Instead, Westmoreland has tried to capture the vintage Trans-Am vibe in his 1967 Mustang while using modern parts and pieces. With a basic 302 engine, a Toploader four-speed, and suspension custom-fabbed by Dean himself, it looks great, sounds great, and carves the corners, too. In a world of excess it is great to see a truly balanced car that is just a hoot to drive under any conditions.
